The R-1000 is an intuitive stand alone, dedicated recorder/player designed to work with the V-Mixing System in any live event or production. Connect and use the R-1000 with any digital console that has MADI output capabilities by pairing it with the Roland S-MADI REAC MADI Bridge. Sync two units together for a 96-channel recorder/player or sync to video with SMPTE (LTC) or via black burst. All files are stored on a removable hard disk drive (HDD) or solid-state drive (SSD). Material can also be transferred via USB to a connected drive. Virtual Sound Checks are now possible when the R-1000 is integrated with a Roland V-Mixer digital console. Adjust the preamp gains on the console as you would if the band was live and the R-1000 takes care of the gain compensation. Then set compression, EQ, monitors and effects. Setup and configuration can be done using the color LCD touch panel on the front panel or with the PC Remote Control software via a USB connection.
